For a cool summer ride, try our Draggin® Shirt (Draggin® Liners sold separately). The unique mesh knit is made with 7.25 ounce per square yard DuPont™ KEVLAR® fiber, which is comfortable, breathable, allows for excellent air circulation in Summer and layers well in the Winter to help insulate from the cold. Most importantly our Draggin'® Shirts have two layers of protective DuPont™ KEVLAR® aramid fiber at the elbows and shoulders for added protection.
Cut long in length and arms to accommodate all riding positions, this high tech shirt also incorporates adjustable Velcro® tabs at the cuffs to prevent riding up and flapping.
Armored leather is the best safety garment you can wear, but we all know someone who is guilty of wearing just a t-shirt in the hottest summer months. The Draggin’® Shirt easily slips over a t-shirt or replaces it all together and provides some excellent abrasion protection.
Each Draggin’® Shirt is also handmade in the USA!
Please note: The natural color of this protective fiber is canary yellow. Once exposed to sunlight it will deepen to a goldenrod shade. Slight variation in color (as well as the color change) is not only normal, but to be expected.
I read reviews before ordering and saw a couple stating that the stitching came undone on some seams. My first shirt had that same problem. I contacted Draggin and Eric was great. So much so that I ordered a set of shirt and liners for my wife also. Unfortunately stitching came undone on another shirt and liner. Sent those back and Draggin replaced them. I'm a little concerned about how well they will hold together when I'm body surfing asphalt. Check your seams when you receive the item and after the first couple times of wearing.
On to the positive. These are very comfortable to wear. They breathe very well. I wore my set on a 3000 mile road trip. Not much warmer than wearing just normal clothes alone. I do feel much safer riding with this product. If it weren't for 3 out of 5 items being returned due to manufacturing defects I would rate them a 5 star. I hope they get their manufacturing issues under control. Draggin, you have a great product that I have already recommended to my father and MC. I just hope this new set lasts more than a wear or two before the stitching starts to come undone again.
As a result of this customer's experience , we reviewed every shirt and liner in stock and pulled any that show any sign of missed stitching. We have also moved our manufacturing to a new manufacturer in LA, one with much better quality and process control. As we did with this customer, we will do all we can to ensure you get a product you can rely on and ride safe in. Unknown on 16th Jun 2017
As others have said, the color has a hint of red/maroon/brown/rust. But from far away it looks black.
Haven't fallen yet so I can't comment on how it holds up, and hope I never do.
I am one of those people who is in between medium and large. Depending on the brand either can fit me too loose or too tight.
I chose a large and it fits meet decently, not tight, but still hugs me good especially once I tuck it in.
This is good for 80s and under.
although it's pretty hot in the 80s
I like to wear it under regular shirts or sport jerseys. E.Borjas on 12th Jun 2017
Bought yellow XL and wear it with the armor kit. Good trade off for me to have comfort and protection in warm weather. Bought black XL and it fit differently - was snug compared to the yellow (6'4" 210lbs)? Would love to have other colors. Great service and communication from Draggin, overall great experience.

I'm 350 lbs and the 3X fits, more comfortable than I expected for kevlar mesh and lets the air thru for comfortable 80+ degree riding days. BORG! on 20th Apr 2017
Ordered this one for my wife since I have owned one of these shirts for the past 4 years and it is still in good shape. They are actually cooler in the summer (Houston, Texas) than just wearing a tee shirt, no wind or sun burn on the arms. This shirt allows you to ride in the heat of summer comfortably while maintaining a level of protection. Some mesh jackets provide more protection, but they are much warmer than the draggin' shirt in the summer. If you ride in temperatures of 90 degrees F or higher, you need this shirt.

This is a great shirt for summer riding. Let's you know you have some abrasion protection with the wind blowing through. I am using this during summer months with the lightest weight Bohn armor underneath so I have abrasion and impact protection but can catch the breeze Chip on 28th Aug 2016
Well made, comfortable (stretchy material) and very breathable shirt. And (still), as far as I know, one of its kind: a Kevlar t-shirt. To drive through the Dutch country on a Triumph Speedmaster wearing only the Draggin Shirt, without the necessity of jackets etc., gives me extra comfort & confidence of feeling protected - which enhances the pleasure!
However, to buy the shirt in Europe (the Netherlands in my case) the 140 dollar price became a rather ridiculous 240 euros (that is, when I bought it online in Germany - in Holland it was even more expensive!). Still, I bought it (thanks to these positive reviews) and ... I am very happy with it. Would I by it again? Yessiree. Michiel on 28th Aug 2016
Only problem I had with the shirt, the collar seemed a bit tight. If offered in a v-type collar would buy another for me and a couple for the wife.... Unknown on 21st Aug 2016
This is the second one of the shirts I have owned. I have had one of the shirts for the past 5 years I love them they're great to ride in, it give you air flow, keeps the sun off your arms and make you feel safe. Bobby on 2nd Aug 2016
I have not had to put the shirt to a 'test' and hope I never have to, however, some advice on selecting your size is to be sure to order one size up from your normal as these tend to run a bit tight in their fit. It's a good mesh design but not as soft as the leg linners. Maybe after a wash or two it will soften up.
The color is not quite black so its definitely not going to be a fashion coordination piece but of course it is more about function than fashion.
